Thanks Michael.   Seems that I still had apt configured to update from your repository as well as bookworm-backports.   Removing your repository from /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ folder and removing and re-installing samba etc resolved the issue.

And many thanks for your great work supporting samba users on the Debian platform, very much appreciated.
